Women And The River (WATR) - Weekend Event

This program is an exciting addition at Rapidan River Kayak Company. This multi-day event provides instruction and river kayaking experience. Instruction will be by women, for women, to develop skills and confidence. From arrival on Friday evening until departure on Sunday, the weekend will be filled with camaraderie and mutual support of like-minded women as we undertake activities to promote personal empowerment. WATR is about building “confidence through competence”.

In addition to developing kayaking skills, we will discuss the history of the river and the environmental challenges that it faces today.

The WATR Weekend Event will be offered on selected weekends during the summer season, or you may request special scheduling to accommodate your own group. Enrollment is limited to 10 participants per session.

Tent camping space and meals are available on our grounds or, if you prefer, we can recommend local accommodations. Please contact us for current schedule and pricing.

Women And The River (WATR) - One-Day Session

We will be offering separate sessions for those who would prefer a One-Day event. Please contact us for current schedule and pricing.

Basic Kayak Skill Instruction for Adults

Environmental Experiences

We invite school, scout, and civic groups to join us in using the river as a classroom. Learning about the river is much more meaningful when it is an experience, and not just a lesson! Contact us about planning a river study with your group.
